Grace Notes - Counting the Gifts 813-837

I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul shall make its boast in the LORD; the humble shall hear of it and be glad.
O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt His name together.

  2. Your blog made me smile! You have such beautiful photos on your blog - love it!

  3. Dear Andrea Dawn,

    As I look at your zoo pictures, I think we must have had some of the same wondrous moments this past weekend. I was in awe of the rhino and the many many bird and the bitty reptiles and farm animals. The sheer variety made me applaud the Father in my heart.

    My toe and your knee keeping us slow, but our faiths keeping us looking upward. I truly believe we are sister of the heart. I am so happy to see your pictures. They link me to you so very vividly.


  4. I come eager and always leave refreshed just to hear and see of your grace notes... thanksgiving so sweet to the One who is ever faithful and calls us 'His own'...
    beautiful photos and descriptions here. loved the cat licking her chomps and the fruitful hydrangeas!

  5. I loved this today! Such a beautiful list. I really had to smile at the cat and those smacking-good treats!!! They really let you know,don't they? Wat a beautiful name for lilies! Sweet Surrender. I don't think I could resist that, just on the merits of their name!!! So glad I stopped by today. I go away blessed . . .again!

  6. during the summertime – I open my sliding door and listen to the birds sing before dawn – so, of your list – the last one is kind of special to me. But of course, Laska the Love Kitty forces me to choose the tuna treats – and that awesome picture you took of your love kitty. And of course, all of your pictures were amazing – and I was blessed, just like Cora in the comment above me – again. God bless and keep you and each and every one of yours Andrea Dawn.

  7. Wonderful things to be grateful for!
